Amsterdam – Museumplein (Dec*)
Welcome to the very core of Christmas. All the happenings mingle – and jingle – here in Museumplein. We’re talking the festive-style village, ice rink, and market stalls. There’s even a mini replica of Skinny Bridge! Enjoy yummy seasonal treats while you walk, including pancakes, classic German sausages, and mugs of mulled wine.
Berlin – Alexanderplatz Market
Enter the place for all things Christmas. Potters, blacksmiths and craftspeople all showcase their unique wares, so take time to wander around. Sip mulled wine as you soak up the air of excitement, and you’ll be treated to far-reaching scenes of the city. You’ll find the massive Ferris wheel as well too.
Budapest – Vörösmarty Square Market (Nov – Dec)*
Considered one of Europe’s best markets, the Christmas Fair fills Vörösmarty Square with nativity scenes, handicrafts and a giant fir tree. Wandering the market is a feast for the senses, as the scent of cinnamon drifts from steaming cups of wine while you enjoy warm Hungarian honey cookies.
Krakow – Rynek Glowny Market (Nov – Dec)*
Krakow’s Main Square gets dressed up in its fanciest festive sparkle to open its doors to Christmassy stalls. You’ll find all kinds of goods, including jewellery, toys, tablecloths and more, all wrapped up in glittering lights. You can even tuck into sweets, spiced nuts and gingerbread.
